Notes from our Green Buyer

There is a lot to say about this coffee from our old friend, Lucia Ortiz. La Avila is the highest part of the farm, sitting high above the rest of Las Mercedes at 1500 meters. It’s here they have planted their Maracaturra plants, which you’ll notice boast rather large beans, because of half of its genetics: the Maragogipe varietal. This is crossed with Caturra to create the rare Maracaturra varietal. After harvesting and hand-sorting, they take this lot and dry it in its full fruit (“Natural”) and the skin is removed after drying. What we get to enjoy is a rare coffee with a lot going on!

Notes from our Roaster

La Avila’s Maracaturra Natural offers a depth and complexity reminiscent of red wine and cherry. Alongside that punchy red fruit note, you’ll notice it has a well-rounded low note, like chocolate. The overall complexity contributes to its balance: its aspects don’t compete against each other, but blend well on the palette for a sweet coffee that’s relatively heavier-bodied. We recommend brewing on a Chemex.
